Automation: Interphex, WBF conference standards, others

04/24/2007


New York, NY and Baltimore, MD —Better manufacturing through automation are among the themes at Interphex Pharmacuetical Manufacturing Conference and Exhibition show in New York April 24-26, and the WBF 2007 North American Conference, April 30-May 30, in Baltimore. Just ahead, educational opportunities abound; the last three weeks in June include at least seven industry shows.

Exhibits, more than 100 sessions, and roundtables at Interphex , aim to "to help optimize every aspect of your operation, from process development and R&D through manufacturing and packaging." More than 1,000 suppliers (a record number) are expected on the exhibit floor. The event is co-located with PharmaMedDevice, showing the convergence of the medical device, pharmaceutical, and biologic industries.

Sessions on ISA-88 and ISA-95 specifications at WBF 2007 North American Conference include practical details about how they can help lower operating costs and improve operations. Technical papers on B2MML, Make2Pack, and XML will be presented by industry professionals who have successfully implemented these strategies-sharing their experiences and bottom line results, say organizers.

Other upcoming events cover robotics, machine vision, and sensors, along with company sponsored conferences from Siemens, National Instruments, Honeywell, Rockwell Automation, and Freescale. The Control Engineering event calendar has more on each of these and others along with links to the automation or process control shows or conference sites.
